Here’s today’s delicious serving of Fun Fact — did you know that fig is one of the most referenced trees in many religious scriptures and one of the most frequently used fruits in a number of religious rituals around the world? Here’s one that’s really interesting: In the book The Art of Persian Cooking, Forough Hekmat wrote that once a year when the figs are ripe, each child is weighed and the equivalent of his or her weight in figs is given to the poor as an offering to God 🙏. What a sweet story of generosity! With or without religious rituals though, you can still enjoy the uniquely nectar-like flavour of Iranian figs with #DriedPersianWildBabyFigs from #SaffronAndMore.
